The Wraparound Project (WAP) is a hospital-based violence intervention program housed in San Francisco General hospital. WAP’s goal is to reduce the burden violent injury in San Francisco. WAP’s case managers use the time just after injury as a “golden window” to identify and address the underlying risk factors for injury. In this interactive session, we will introduce participants to the legal challenges that individuals at high-risk of violent injury endure. A WAP case manager will discuss the impact of these challenges on at-risk youth. We will then outline the steps taken by WAP to develop a medico-legal partnership to address this need. The panelists will discuss issues peculiar to this at-risk population and highlight/solicit innovative methods to overcome these issues. The proposed presenters are: Adaobi Nwabuo, MBBS, MPH – the program manager of The San Francisco Wraparound Project, Christine Smith of the Giffords Law Center; and Michael Texada – Supervising case manager for the Wraparound Project
